Chop any large berries into smaller pieces; set aside. In a bowl, using an electric mixer, beat Cream cheese with sugar until fluffy; gradually beat in milk and vanilla extract until blended and smooth. Stir in berries.

Spoon into dessert cups or dishes and sprinkle with graham crackers. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days


Assemble these cheesecake cups in reusable plastic containers with lids to pack in lunches.

Frozen mixed berries are terrific to have on hand. You can use just one variety if you like. If you want to use fresh berries, freeze them for about half an hour – the chill helps set up the pudding.
